Unbreakable flower vase
That one time your beautiful flower vase was smashed into smithereens, will never be forgotten. A stray ball in the room or other awkward moments, every family has experienced upsetting breakages at one stage or another. But that will no longer be an issue with this unbreakable flower vase. It’s certainly very useful, but also a home accessory to make any mother’s heart skip a beat.
What do you need? An empty 1.5 litre drink or water bottle. Cut the tapered neck off, so you’re left with the wide, straight part of the bottle. Cut vertical strips down the length of the bottle of about 1cm wide, but don’t cut completely to the bottom of the bottle. Leave about 6 to 10cm over, to hold the stems of the flowers. Roll each strip tightly over a pen or pencil, and if you’re doing it right, then they will curl over. For a more fun effect, you can cut every curled strip in two or three. Add some pretty stickers or your little one’s fingerprints and finish it off with a beautiful (self-picked) bouquet. Now, Mother’s Day is complete.
